political constituency for it, you saw the pain that republicans like lindsey graham went through with a slight cut in defense. if you get to the stuff they want to cut, that they want the president to put his political capital on the line and say, i'll cut that, that's a very tiny sliver of the actual budget. all of the welfare program are like 10, 11% of the budget. so, really, if you want to name stuff you want to cut, they're very small and wouldn't save a lot of money, and also things that would make you look terrible. but they want the president to use his political capital to say, i'll cut home heating and meals on wheels. but they are the ones who want to do that. they should say it. >> and jared, the president in the state of the union address went through a litany of things he was prepared to cut and things that he was suggesting they might be able to reach compromises on, that he didn't get very specific about, but said, i'm willing to get into discussions about that. how is the president supposed to be able to get into discussions with the other side of the aisle, when people

and lindsey graham criticized him. here's mccain. >> i don't think that what happened yesterday is helpful to the american people. but somehow, to allege that the united states of america, our government would drop a drone hellfire missile on jane fonda, that is -- that brings the conversation from a serious discussion about u.s. policy to the realm of the ridiculous. >> my first thought was who are you and what have you done to john mccain? i assume that you are fine with republican senators targeting each other. but some liberals also agree with rand paul. is he exposing a guidivide on t left about this president's anti-terrorist strategy? >> well, first of all, i just think maybe we're going to be having normal politics in america again. what's happened the past four years has been quite shameful. you had the republicans said look, our number one priority is to get rid of this president, so every liberal and progressive said well, our number one priority is to keep him in there. so then it was just straight shirts and skins, ds and rs, republicans versus democrat on every issue.

[cheers and applause] all right. if fans here tonight. and most impressively, many of those 4,700 people were the ones we were trying to kill. [laughter] unfortunately, not everyone is as proud of president obama's drone program as i am. for instance, president obama. [laughter] just listen to former press secretary, robert gibbs. >> when i went through the process of becoming press secretary, one of the first things they told me was you're not even to acknowledge the drone program. you're not even to discuss that it exists. >> stephen: though, truth is, the secret got out a long time ago. i don't know how, but it was leaked to at least 4,700 people.
